Public Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002; technology projects; gain sharing. Authorizes a responsible public entity (RPE) to include a gain-sharing component in any interim or comprehensive agreement for a qualifying project consisting of technology infrastructure, services or applications. Gain sharing is defined as a provision of an interim or comprehensive agreement where the RPE and the private entity agree to share a percentage of any savings that are realized and that can be attributed to the efforts of the private entity. The bill also allows an RPE to request the Public-Private Advisory Commission to perform a preliminary review of an unsolicited proposal for a technology-related qualifying project anticipating substantial savings to the responsible public entity and includes a gain-sharing component providing for the private entity to share in a percentage of the savings. In addition, the bill includes technology applications in the definition of qualifying project. Read the Bill »
